Going to be a few Premier League strikers dropping down pecking order at their respective teams in January. Some will see that impacting negatively on their World Cup chances and will want game time. We would be in a good position to cherry pick the best of these on loan. Will also be some good young prospects finding their sub roles being replaced by U23 games. Two such players on show at Goodison tonight: are Lookman and Sandro Ramirez likely to feature for Everton after Sam has made his January signings.
Think some of these players would be better loan options than some of the names we have been linked with to date.

Hmm Scottish wolf.
It’s all about attitude and application though.
We have brought names that were supposed to be good both experienced and established players for their previous clubs and also up and coming players that have failed over the years. I trust Nuno and his team to come up with a couple of interesting acquisitions.
No one expected Neves, Jota, Cav, Saiss, Douglas, coady, boly, Doherty, Bennett and ruddy to play like they have been.


2.) 19 Dec 2017 13:45:58
So what's wrong with Bonatini?


3.) 21 Dec 2017 20:13:18
LikeBonatini but he's running on empty
He needs a rest
January is massive cf cm of Quality will see us over the line
Locadia injured and out of the frame.
Dwight Gayle would be a par signing.
In Nuno we trust.


4.) 24 Dec 2017 08:26:43
After reaching the halfway point in the season I'm not against Wolves cherry picking the top players from the Championship.

What about?
Hugill/ Grabben - ST
Fredericks - RB.


5.) 29 Dec 2017 12:01:17
Anyone for Locida. We where about to sign him on transfer deadline day but PSV d the plug last minute. Since then he's scored 9 and assisted 2.

Query: Has Jordan Allan joined Elgin City on loan or has he been released. Had some injury problems but was scoring regularly for U18 team at end of last season.

scottish wolf

1.) 18 Jul 2017 20:50:18
I think he's still with us.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 22:08:57
Still with us, there are 2 Jordan Allans.


3.) 18 Jul 2017 22:52:58
The Jordan Allan at Elgin is 22 years old. Ours has just turned 18.


4.) 18 Jul 2017 23:07:13
Pedrinho goncalves has signed also boubacar hanne 18 yr old both go in the u23s with Scott sellers.

It is probably natural that promoted teams pick over the remains of those teams being relegated from the Premier League to see if there are any bargains to be had, with experience of the big stage. However are there any examples of where this has been a success. Teams do survive and even flourish by using their Championship players plus new recruits from other than Premier teams. Can anyone provide examples of the former, as I'm struggling to think of any.

Burnley
Bourmouth
Watford.


2.) 01 May 2018 22:11:54
Burnley, Bournemouth, Watford what? Explain please. I was looking for players relegated with one team, starring for a promoted team the following season.


3.) 02 May 2018 08:49:54
Robertson at Liverpool?


4.) 02 May 2018 09:34:40
How about Ward, Jones and Vokes at Burnley?


5.) 02 May 2018 22:14:54
Did they not join Burnley when they were a Championship team. Also, Window Wolf, Liverpool were not promoted to the Premier League the year they bought Robertson.


6.) 03 May 2018 07:26:54
Doyle from Reading did well for us to start.

Fletcher from Burnley though we were in our second season.

Hunt from Reading to Hull?

I can't think of any examples from this season and I would say that as a rule it doesn't work out.

Brilliant result and performance last night. Always looking for players from opposition team, who would improve what we have. Think Bamford showed real quality and has similar attributes to Bonatini but is more mobile and more natural goal scorer. Other player from yesterday's opposition was Traore. Pullis has improved him out of all recognition so think what Nuno could do with him. Raw pace is an attribute all defenders fear - even Premier League defenders.

1.) 01 Apr 2018 09:32:52
Traore would be a good acquisition! Agreed. ⚽️😉.

I would expect any new entrants will only come from the Mendes stable.


2.) 20 Dec 2017 07:37:04
Aboubakar only striker that ticks all box's for me. looks fantastic we get him I will be over the moon.

Free man in the back three, is a really key position in the way NES sets up his team. Coady has filled the position brilliantly and been given a lot of game time pre-season and in the season to date, in order to grow into the position. Who else, other than Saiss could play that role? Saiss has been pivotal to our success to date playing as one of the two defensive Central midfielders so would not particularly want to move him. likely to be a completely different starting eleven against Bristol Rovers, so will be interesting to see who is given that role. Any suggestions?

scottish wolf

1.) 17 Sep 2017 18:04:50
Probably Ryan Bennett.


2.) 17 Sep 2017 18:29:22
I actually think we will be better away from home all season, we are excellent at hitting teams on the break with the likes of cav Jota Costa etc, and a quick passing game. at home teams will come to frustrate us like Millwall, in fact even Bristol rovers may be tricky, I wood like to see botatini play ins front two now and again to give us that other option.


3.) 18 Sep 2017 08:00:22
Completely new starting 11 against Rovers expect Bright Price Zyro Bennett MGW Norris Marshall Ronan to feature.


4.) 18 Sep 2017 15:27:54
MGW injured I think. Not even sure we have 22 fit players, or rather 20 fit outfield players. Deslandes will probably play and likely Wilson will be on the bench at least. Might even start up front, as we don't have a lot of choice outside of our stars.

On the basis of a 11-player rotation, which Nuno has done for previous cup matches,

Norris
? Bennett Deslandes
Ronan Price N'Diaye Marshall
Bright Wilson Zyro

? = Hause or Douglas if fit, otherwise someone playing out of position.

I wonder if we'll see Batth moved back into the cup team. Needs someone to hold it together, and looking at that list I'm not inspired. Price, I guess, odd though it appears. Or Bennett maybe.


5.) 19 Sep 2017 17:20:18
Me again.

E&S predicting similar to me, but with Coady in the back 3 and Doc instead of N'Diaye. I'm sticking with N'Diaye and not sure Nuno will risk Coady in a cup match like this. On the other hand, the team does need a leader, and if not Coady then Batth.

Will know in a couple of hours.


6.) 19 Sep 2017 19:14:26
So it's Coady AND Batth!
But no Bennett - perhaps he'll feature in the next league match.

Also Rasmussen, whoever he is, rather than Donovan Wilson.

Looking especially at Zyro and to a lesser extent Price for some game-changing play here.

Just a quick post to highlight the quality of the coverage of U23 game on Southampton TV.

Don’t know if there is any substance to the story above but I for one think it would be a really good move. Had a brilliant season for Norwich and Man City will want his development to progress from Championship loan deal. Celtic are being touted as a destination or Stoke, as a replacement for Butland. Personally I’d take him over Butland.

Dutch football is not what it used to be. Long list of so called prospects from top Dutch sides who have failed to make the mark over last few years. Days of van Persia and Bergkamp are long gone. Van wolfswinkel and Davy Klassen and player who chose Brighton over ourselves are the best they have to offer these days.

Would take Dawson. Right sided centre back who will get fair share of goals from set pieces.

Has come into his own since Pardew took over. Looked real handful, strong and surprisingly quick. Can’t see them selling as he is their most likely scorer. If he was available he’d be pretty high up on my wanted list.

Weather nothing to do with yesterday’s defeat. Deflected shot for first but fair play they had the shot, which was more than we managed. Goals were th e result of poor decision making. Deep in final third took thrown in to Cav who then turned inside and played loose all across his own penalty area. Three bad decisions there. Second goal started with Coady not getting loose ball under control and then playing loose looped pass which led directly to their throw. Douglas turned too easily and pull back went to Forest player in a read of space. Nice finish so credit where credit due. From then on on they were well organised, stuck to game plan and looked a threat on break. Main problem was that a number of players especially wing back looked to be running on empty plus didn’t get enough players attacking six yard box when we had some momentum in before they scored.

Forster no way. Keepers thrive on confidence. Watching both Hart and Forster play this year has been hugely uncomfortable. Happened to Ruddy part way season and he looked like an accident waiting to happen. Nuno stuck with him and his confidence came back. That didn’t happen for either Hart or Forster wouldn’t be surprised to see both begin to fade from rank of premier league goalies.

Talk of Sporting players being able to break their contracts and leave on ‘frees’. Don’t know how that would be the case but some interesting options available if that was to happen, not least Bas Dost who appears to be the one who has suffered the worst. Saw the 92nd minute goal Patrício conceded. Was a real howler but nothing justifies the behaviour of Sporting’s so called fans.

Grealish is a good young player who will improve. Decision making much better this year than was the case previously. He is a Villa fan but he is a professional footballer and will make decisions based on what is best for his career. If Villa don’t get promoted this year then he might well want a fresh challenge. Not that many homegrown players as comfortable on the ball as he is. Would be an asset if NES could work out how to get the best out of him and quite where to play him.

Not surprised didn’t deliver the goods last two games. The mental and physical resilience needed to achieve our key targets: promotion and champions, was bound to take its toll. Championship takes no prisoners. Look at Fulham lacked what they needed when it was in their own hands. We didn’t crossed rhe line and although I am sure they wanted 100 points and record of beating every team, psychologically and physically just could not go one more time. Some of these players have played 90 minutes week in and week out, hardly a shock that they couldn’t go again yesterday.
